Bible: 2 Kings 2:12-15

2:12 While Elisha was watching, he was crying out, “My father, my father! The chariot and horsemen of Israel!” 1  Then he could no longer see him. He grabbed his clothes and tore them in two. 2:13 He picked up Elijah’s cloak, which had fallen off him, and went back and stood on the shore of the Jordan. 2:14 He took the cloak that had fallen off Elijah, 2  hit the water with it, and said, “Where is the Lord, the God of Elijah?” When he hit the water, it divided and Elisha crossed over.

2:15 When the members of the prophetic guild in Jericho, 3  who were standing at a distance, 4  saw him do this, they said, “The spirit that energized Elijah 5  rests upon Elisha.” They went to meet him and bowed down to the ground before him.
